During his acceptance speech…
Stevie hit the stage with a message: Love. He told the crowd, “I love you, first of all, because the God that I serve says that we should love everyone. I also love you because it feels better to love than to hate. And I believe that if we can just come together, because we must come together, because we are at spiritual warfare, and we must, without question, let the world know that love is king and queen.”
